Further allegations of bribery within Kenyan athletics.

Two runners banned for doping claim the chief executive of Athletics Kenya asked them each for a bribe to reduce their suspensions.

400 metre runner Joy Sakari and hurdler Francisca Koki Manunga have told the Associated Press that CEO Isaac Mwangi asked for the payment in a meeting last October.

Mwangi has dismissed the allegation as "just a joke" and says he never met the athletes privately.


The runners say they would be willing to testify to the IAAF ethics commission, that's investigating alleged corruption at Athletics Kenya.
